This edition of the Restored HBCD is the best and most up to date
ever. It has many new utilities, many have been updated and all the
selection menus have been further improved. A new way of running
portable utilities without decompressing, using WinMount, is
introduced for the first time (Thank you Ha Son). A brand new Mini
Windows 7 environment is also included. It is a modification of the
excellent WonderShare LiveBoot 2012 Windows 7 PE. With it we get
several Spotmau rescue utilities for free.
Hiren’s Boot CD is a vast collection of bootable and portable
utilities for the management, diagnosis and repair of computer
problems, recover lost or deleted files or cracking passwords. There
is no computer problem for which HBCD does not have at least one tool
to help with its solution. In addition, HBCD provides the means to
take control of any computer and communicate with other computers,
surf the internet, write documents or programs, without booting the
installed operating system. There are literally hundreds of utilities
and it is advised that you explore the contents before the need for
it arises. Hiren’s Boot CD can be used in two ways:
* As a boot CD to take control of the computer without starting the
installed operating system so that we can do repairs or clone the
main disk, recover files, test the memory and hardware, clean
severe viral infections, et.c. To do any of these simply boot the
computer from the CD and select a utility from the menu. Options
include FreeDOS, 3 Mini Windows environments (98, XP and 7) and
two Linux rescue environments. Optionally you may include the
forensics/penetration Linux live CD Backtrack.
* As a collection of portable repair and diagnostic utilities which
can be run from within Windows without installation. To do this
insert the CD when Windows is running and select a utility from
the HBCD Program Launcher menu. If the CD does not autorun you
may start the menu by running HBCDMenu.cmd. When the operating
system not functional or unavailable the portable utilities may
be still be used if we boot a Mini Windows environment included
in the CD. (3rd option of the main boot menu).
For example Acronis Disk Director can be started in 4 ways:
* Boot the CD, select "Dos Programs", "Restored Utilities" and then
"Acronis". (useful if we wish to clone or restore the main hard
disk and there is not enough memory to boot Mini Windows XP).
* Boot the CD, and from the main menu from the "Hard Disk
Utilities" select "Acronis".
* Boot the CD, select "Mini Windows XP" or Mini Windows 7 and then
select "Acronis Disk Director" found under "Partittion/Boot/MBR"
in the HBCD Program Launcher menu.
* Boot to your windows operating system, insert the DVD (or the USB
stick) and select Acronis Disk Director from the HBCD Program
This Restored DVD includes all the utilities found in the latest
Hiren’s Boot CD 15.2 (December 2012).  with many of the utilities
updated to their latest version. It is called Restored because it

releases (since version 11.0.) It also includes other tools such by
Acronis, Paragon, Active@, and other useful software fully integrated

Installation Instructions and Important Notes
* Burn (preferably at the lowest possible speed) theiso image to a
dvd, insert the dvd in a computer and boot from it.
* For installation to USB read document usb-installation.pdf
* For keyboards other than English you can still apply Hiren’s
* To the forensics distro BackTrack, read document
* To reduce size of DVD to CD or to fit in a smaller GB USB stick
read file trim-dvd.txt
* Read document install-win-with-hbcd.pdf, a guide for how to
install windows from USB.
* Mini Windows XP and Mini Windows 7 run from RAM. If you start one
program after another you will soon run out of memory. So clean
the temp folder from time to time.
* The HBCD program launcher (and many portable utilities) are
incompatible with 64 bit Windows 7. Use them only within 32 bit
windows, Mini Windows XP and Mini Windows 7.
Kudos and thanks to:
* Ha Canh Son, for the idea and development of using WinMount for
running portable utilities in WindowsPE and for his numerous
tips, suggestions, testing and scripts.
* DimTam, for supplying many updates, corrections and advice.HomepageHomepage
